Hi

I'm a Master degree student in Chula University. I'm doing one survey for my Thesis, which is about foreigner's experience in visiting any Bangkok private hospital and their online search patterns.

I will be so grateful if any of you have experience in any Bangkok private hospital visit and willing to contribute 10 minutes to do this questionnaire.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I live near Pattaya and have visited the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital many times. All of the Doctors I have seen speak English. I broke my hand in two places. I had to wait 3 days for the hand surgeon to come from Bangkok.

The emergency rooms are huge. There are no curtains that I saw. Any necessary medical tests required were administered and the results were known within minutes.

Because I am older they were reticent to give me a general anesthesia. They wanted to give me a spinal block. I informed them that I had more than 6 surgeries and tolerated the drugs well.

Of course, the costs are a lot less. All of the hospital rooms are private. There is an extra bed for a guest.

The food was Western and prepared well. It did not sit covered by metal covers for hours.

Wound care, after release, was daily. They set up appointments to come in daily for bandage changes.

The bills had to be paid upon release. If you use American Express, they give a 10% discount on the drugs.

Survey seems to be slanted towards medical tourism. I had an illness in BKK that had nothing to do with plastic surgery or whatever. My care was excellent at a private hospital.
